The Massachusetts House has unanimously approved a bill that would let motorists buy a "Boston Strong" license plate with proceeds helping victims of last year's marathon bombing. 

The proposed Massachusetts license plate would include the words "Boston Strong" — a phrase that became popular after the attack that killed three people and injured more than 260 others.
